Fiji petrel video


This video says about itself:

A short video showing the search for the Criticality Endangered Fiji Petrel by NatureFiji-MareqetiViti.

Known from just one specimen collected in 1855 on Gau Island, Fiji, the Fiji Petrel was lost for the next 130 years. Since 1984 there have been a handful of reports of “grounded” birds that had crashed onto village roofs on Gau. Until 2009 there had been no confirmed sightings of the seabird at sea. This video shows the voyage that captured the first amazing images of the bird.

Two communities in Fiji are now reaping the benefits of protecting their forests for the sake of birds and other biodiversity, and have vowed to promote the message of conservation to other communities as well: here.
